New York Mets vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
These two teams are going in totally different directions. I look for the Mets’ struggles to continue and for the Giants to play well in this one. I have a hard time seeing the Mets get back on track in this series.
The Giants are the better team and they have played well at home this year. I have very little confidence backing the Mets here.
I feel that Gausman will keep up his good pitching and the Giants will hit around Hill enough to get a win.
I like the Giants on the moneyline.
